John was FANTASTIC. We had to roll with the punches several time. He served as a guide the whole way.
His client portal is unmatched by any other DJ I spoke with and guides you through all parts of the event you may need music for.
Your DJ is an investment in the party atmosphere and An Affordable Dj is just that, an Affordable investment! Would use again.

s to edit, make changes, as well as suggest ideas. He made it the whole process incredibly simple by providing us with examples while still and allowing us to make the decisions.
At the wedding, John had the perfect personality for a DJ. He made the night fun from the beginning until the end, while at the same time keeping us on track with the schedule, making our wedding party announcements, and getting the party started. No one wanted the night to end.
It should also be noted that John has excellent customer service and is a very kind person at heart.

ural music played and I gave him three songs and he was able to get all three for us, which was a huge hit. I also changed things up last minute (I.e. During the reception) and he was totally cool with it and it was seamless. We booked him for 6 hours but ended up paying (not much, by the way) for two additional hours because we were having so much fun. He also did our ceremony music and did a fantastic job with the transitions. We also used An Affordable DJs company, Northeast Ohio Photo Booth, for our photobooth which was a blast. We received a memory book with it which was so much fun to go through. We also will be receiving digital copies as well. All of these services were provided perfectly at HALF the cost of what I was quoted at by some local competitors. John was humble, efficient, organized, dressed sharp, didn't try to steal the show, and is great at his job. Everything was wonderful and we are truly blessed to have chosen this company!
